The streets are slushy and happy hour is calling. You've got three options—dodge puddles like a wuss, stay home and drink by yourself (more like sad hour), or man up and own the wet sidewalk with the Forsake Pilot Boot. The Pilot's waterproof and breathable membrane means you won't get wet feet when you're walking through the slop, while the full-grain leather, nubuck, and Cordura upper keeps you looking so fresh that no one will ever suspect you're wearing a tough-guy boot. Throw in a rugged, grippy outsole and comfortable dual-density EVA midsole, and the Pilot will keep you feeling dry and looking fly all winter long.
Let's be honest, you hate winter camping and you've certainly never been to Everest Base Camp. But that doesn't mean you won't benefit from the performance of the waterproof Forsake Pilot boots.

I own two pairs (the Pilot and Thurston) and I couldn't be happier with my purchases. The shoes are a unique combination of style and durability that make them the perfect match for the trendy outdoors-men. Whether I plan on taking a grueling trek through the Adirondacks for days at a time or am meeting up with a couple of friends at a hip bar in Boston, these shoes fit the occasion. These shoes really are everything they are marketed to be...
I bought a pair of Forsakes (the Thurston) from Kickstarter with the intention of using them as a hiking boot. Indeed they are well built and seem durable (haven't had a chance to put them through the wringer yet), but they've gotten more use as everyday shoes than as outdoor gear! They look good with a pair of jeans and a button down. They are my go-to shoe.
Been waiting to throw down for the perfect shoe that's stylish, comfortable, and functional. These shoes carry a lot of swagger given their lightweight, cushioned feel, gnarly outsole, and two-tone leather color scheme. Definitely looking at getting a second pair of the first generation while they are still available.
I bought these for my man. I wanted something stylie that was also quite functional and these fit the bill. He says they are very comfortable, waterproof, seem to be well made, come with two sets of laces, and are generally really nice looking.
